    Default question about dial pad themes....
    i have a 3GS firmware 3.0.1. now i tried installing a few of the dialpad themes but have noticed that the dial button wont change like the number pad keys or the add or delete buttons... anyone been able to find how why? i can get it to change to one button but not utilize the second once its pressed... any thoughts or ideas? thanks!!

    The reason for this is that most people don't know how to make proper dialer replacements. The way Apple's dial button works is that the green highlight is produced by a one-pixel wide image that is stretched and placed underneath the dial button. The upper button has transparency, so the green image underneath is visible. To replicate this behavior, artists have to make quite sophisticated graphics manipulations. But unfortunately, most themers don't bother or don't have the skills. There are dialers that actually do this (e.g. the Aqwoah dialer, which not only shows the proper highlight, but also animates the key presses so they look depressed).
